The Tompkins Food Future team invites the public to attend a preview presentation of the Tompkins County Food System Plan: A Roadmap for our Future at upcoming meetings of two local municipal government groups.
To learn more about the plan, join online for a 30-minute presentation at the Planning, Development and Environmental Quality committee meeting on YouTube live on Monday, June 27th at 1:30pm, or view the recording there later at any time.
The plan also will be presented at the Tompkins County Legislature meeting on Tuesday, July 19th at 121 East Court Street in Ithaca. Members of the public are welcome to participate in the public comment process either during the Privilege of the Floor beginning at 5:30pm or by submitting comments in writing. In addition to the County’s YouTube channel, Legislature meetings can be viewed live by Spectrum cable subscribers on Public Access Channel 15.
Tompkins Food Future is a two-year community planning project led by the Tompkins Food Policy Council, funded by the Tompkins County Legislature and the Community Foundation of Tompkins County, and housed at Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County. Over the two years, organizers have conducted a baseline assessment of the current local food system and facilitated the development of a long-term community food system action plan focused on a resilient, equitable, and healthy food system for all Tompkins County residents. Throughout this process, more than 2,000 individuals and 50 businesses and organizations have contributed.
Tompkins Food Future will host a series of forums over the summer and fall months to share the plan with the public, seek feedback, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
